    just got done helping my friend with his mil-spec.
    we did the following:
    10-8 trigger
    Kimber ambi (he's a lefty)
    Ed Brown bushing
    trigger job.
    cut the slide stop down.
    installed a flat MSH
    removed ILS

    I've never shot a flat trigger. It looks interesting, though.

    That is a sharp looking 1911. You did good.

    Nice job quack. But why no beavertail and commander hammer? That would so complete that gun IMO.

    thanks!!!
    because he hasn't decided on what he wants to do yet.
    he's thinking about doing this, but i think a beavertail would look better.
